v2i protector

Hi I used to have a program powerquest v2i for servers, I really loved it since it made great backups of my servers and autodeleted old ones, I have tried acronis for server but I do not like it since it keeps copies of every backup and does not delete old ones making hd fulls. Does anyone knows of any other easy to setup backup solution for win 2008 servers, which has these features incremental backups, full backups scheduele and deleting old backups?

Thank you

I think Symantec bought that and it's called Backup Exec System Recovery now.  I use it, it works.  Not real cheap for the server version--also they have a desktop version.  You can administer it centrally.

Datedam is correct.  V2I protector was bought by Symantec and initially called Livestate and later renamed Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery.  Since they purchased it they've added some added dissimilar hardware restoration and the capability to convert to virtual machine format (VMware and MS).  Some of the other other modules provide Granular restore options and the capability to recover emails from imaged Exchange servers

Newly released Acronis True Image 2019

In announcing the release of the 15th Anniversary Edition of Acronis True Image 2019, the company revealed that its artificial intelligence-based anti-ransomware technology – stopped more than 200,000 ransomware attacks on 150,000 customers last year.

Not Backup Exec--Backup Exec System Recovery which is really pretty much a Ghost that works on servers.  Easy to configure but costs about $800.

I think Acronis has a similar product that costs a bit less.

(Note that it's not really much at all to do with Backup Exec but someone at Symantec thought they could market it better if they gave it that name, it used to be Livestate as paulsolov mentions.)

The version you're looking for is Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery.  Acronis is another good product and costs about the same when you consider that they charge for the dissimilar recovery option which is included in the base price of the Symantec product.
